The Stingray driveline consists of the driveshaft, differential carrier, and axle driveshafts. The driveshaft is of conventional tubular design with a universal joint at each end. The differential is mounted directly to a suspension crossmember. Power is transmitted to the wheels through universal-joined axle driveshafts. The 1984 Corvette uses two types of drive shafts, one made from aluminum and the other from steel. Each shaft is installed in the conventional manner.
